You could say that, but then you look at a team like the Patriots.

They, as a team (players and all), would not let anyone get a big head or over-inflated ego. They truly buy into the TEAM concept as opposed to the individual-great-players-together pov. Listening to interviews with the Patriot players, they just don't let anyone get bigger than the team.

Personally, I think the Texans look at a LOT more than just talent when they evaluate a player, and that is fantastic.

Even tho' T.O. is all that, I wouldn't trade him for A.J. and his future potential.

T.O. - Mr. Mouth - is about ego - HIS.

A.J. - Mr. Quiet - is about the team.

Teams win, and individuals lose....(most of the time!)
